The Bureau of Land Managment houses millions of historic land documents which have passed through the hands of the United States federal government. Most of these patents are original home-steading grants dating back to the 1880s. You'll also find grazing, mining, and timber land patents. The BLM also administers Indian Trust lands, which have been grouped with these records. While they do publicly list these patents, the data can be overwhelming. The Land Patents™ has done the processing and analysis for you so you can access and explore data from the BLM but in our friendly environment.
